So this is my first attempt at a drill press table – after looking at many designs and over planning/designing, I just said the “the heck with it – you have scrap wood, just build something!” So with some ½” MDF for a base (17”x13”) and another layer cut into thirds to fit my T-Track I came up with this.
Not sure how long it will last or if I should treat it (let me know); worst case I will learn from my experience. I cut the top into three pieces so I wouldn’t have to router or dado any slots for the T-Track…I have a wobbler on my RA saw – this just seemed easier. Nothing is glued, just tacked in place with 1” brads (shrug).
Let me know what you think (Are the tracks to close? Don’t seem to be but…) – I have seen many designs and types of wood. I am happy with it…should I paint or spray/slap some lacquer on it?
